  2. Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

    Hi all well I couldn't resist putting together what I have so far. This thing is huge. This is a 1/6 bike with a similar size engine. And it's heavy.
  3. Chroming chrome

    You can get chrome in a stick. Look for Molotow liquid chrome. Available on that auction site in 1,2 and 4mm marker pens. Brilliant stuff.

  5. Chroming chrome

    Hi all, I'm getting back into modeling after many years away. I'm mainly going to be doing motorcycles, British bikes specifically. Looking at the chrome parts, I'm sure there must be a way of getting wheels, chains etc.. looking better. I've seen removing the chrome with thick bleach but nothing more. Is there an idiots guide to doing this somewhere or a pic by pic instruction maybe? Thanks in advance. Simon.
  6. Wish it didn’t, that’s painful
  7. BUGATTI T46 "Surprofilée" 1:8

    Thanks guys! I will try all your solutions...Between two sobs: With a Pocher's part, revisited of course... For my morale, smileys! Dan.
  8. Next step are the come together of body and chassis. The front wheels did not fit into the small wheel arches.So i had to scratch a bit.I sanded the wheel on the top and on the bottom a bit. Was better but still a right height of a SUV. So i used a styrene sheet under both side and now it looks way better.You can see the brown putty i used for it. First time for me to open the door.Works well,but again a problem was detected. When the door is open it can lay onto the fender just like the real car ca. Seams like Tamiya did some strange angles at the body. So i simply cut another edge from the door and now it can be glued to the fender when its done. Its not correct,but it works.That is what counts. On the inside i used some pins and sockets to hold altogether in the right spot.works fine,only need some fine sanding. Christian

    I'll assume thats a K/N filter and you will change it at the regular service intervals. Mark.
  10. 911 GT1

    Fantastic looking build.
  11. Thanks kapam. I do research on all of my builds to ensure reasonable reality.
  12. Uncertain T

    Cheers BeastieBoy73, yes I like to make/paint the way that I would like the real thing! That's why I'm not interested in factory finish, not enough creativity by the builder, that's only my opinion mind.
  13. Last drive of the season...

    Lovely model. Impressive Photoshop skills too... Cheers Wil
  14. Silver/metal paint for a DeLorean

    Now THAT works really well.
  15. Last drive of the season...

    It's great to see that she's no show pony. Very few things are more useless than machines that don't get used for their intended purposes.
  16. A last bit of open air motoring before the harsh weather closes in. Stopped at a friend's lovely estate for a cordial drink and good company. Arriving home, the Sedanca will be treated to an oil change, detailing and then under the flannel cover for the winter.
  17. Silver/metal paint for a DeLorean

    Nice colourful DeLoreans there! Off to the shops today, will see if they have any of the Vallejo Metallic Steel 77.712. Realised I had some Mig Ammo Aluminum and Metallic Silver/Grey, so I might do some testing this weekend. I'll post pics here so that anyone interested can see the comparisons. Cheers!

  19. Aoshima Lamborghini Aventador SV

    Many thanks Shaun shall keep an eye out when it comes to fixing the doors on still haven't got any primer on the kit yet, maybe tomorrow evening thank you for the heads up, wasn't sure how long to leave it before applying the actual colour but will leave it over night just in case Have started on the engine bay area this evening, used Ak metal paints and I have to say they spray very very well. I'm nowhere near the level of spraying alclad yet but they have given a very nice finish to the engine and the engine bay. Have also sprayed up the disks tonight, going for body colour for the actual calipers so they will need masking off before I start doing them properly. But so far the fit of the parts have been superb, really am enjoying taking my time and enjoying this kit. Hopefully have a small photo update of the engine bay area tomorrow evening for you all All the best Matt
  20. Superb Ian.
  21. My punches are late, because they were out of stock ! But the situation has changed today, so, I hope to have them soon Stay tuned for the next steps about my EB logo on the spare wheels locker
  22. Silver/metal paint for a DeLorean

    The Challenge would be to get the "lines" in the brushed surface. Well, that would also be related to the scale. 8-)
  23. Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

    Hi all I've detailed up the airbox. My first attempt at the paper filter My fourth

  25. 911 GT1

    How are going to colour the window surrounds? After making a pig's ear of brush painting mine I'm thinking of using a paint pen this time.
